I read this biography recently, it was very good:

George was always my favourite Beatle.

Such an influential and under-rated guitar player too.

Thanks for the recommendation Jacky! I am going to check it out and I guess my quest to finish the summer of 1973 tour this weekend is blown up now that I have a huge sudden urge to listen to All Things Must Pass all weekend!

Compare 'All Things Must Pass' to the first solo albums by every other Beatle. It's obvious that George had lots of amazing material saved up that John/Paul just wouldn't let him record. 'It's Johnny's Birthday' is his venting at 'Birthday' appearing on the white album at the expense of so many great songs that George had already written.

harrison was always so overshadowed by john and paul, but he was almost as talented imo.

i like john, then george, then paul. i forget the 4th guy.
